Dear FIS Colleagues,

We have just published a study on the "Quantitative Sociotype". 
Basically it tries to respond to two basic questions: How much do we 
talk? With whom do we talk? The data are taken from the same survey and 
filedwork we used to define the Sociotype Questionnaire (a "qualitative" 
test that gauges the whole sociality of the individual). One of the 
intriguing results is that the statistical of number of contacts and 
talking time seem to respond to the Planckian distribution equation, 
PDE, that our colleague Sungchul Ji, one of the co-authors, has extended 
to a number of biological phenomena. Telling that our contacts may 
follow the same Planckian equation than the electromagnetic frequencies 
of the black body radiation competing for the same energy span sounds 
pretty esoteric--but it may be the case! The PDE refers to a competition 
among frequencies, and in our case to a competition for attention time. 
Our social bonds are maintained and actualized mainly by face-to-face 
conversation and also by other communicative surrogates, but our whole 
communication time is limited and we have to opt... Underlying every 
conversation of ours there is both an adaptive necessity and a 
communicative optimization in order to keep a decent sociotype.

Nowadays, with our social nature confronted by very difficult 
circumstances and challenges, one of them the massive "theft of 
attention time" that all kind of screens perform-- we need new, clearer 
concepts explaining our communication needs & limitations. The sociotype 
construct --ultimately based on the conceptual triad genotype, 
phenotype, sociotype-- might help.

Best greetings--Pedro

PS. Interested parties interested in cooperative fieldwork on the 
sociotype may count with ad hoc questionnaires in English and in Spanish.
